Experience

I enjoy supporting people to gain new skills and to improve those they have already. I have written many personalised support plans in accessible formats so they are able to engage to the best of their ability. Within the care sector I have worked as a team leader in both Hastings and Eastbourne for specific periods of time. I have excellent communication and motivational skills which work together to make the support experience fulfilling.

Background

I have worked in adult social care for more than 10 years as a community support worker. I have also been a team leader during this time on several occasions. I have experience with adults who have learning (including autism) and/or physical disabilities. I have written support plans and created 'easy read' versions when and wherever necessary so that the person feels included and confident in the process.
